A Jennifer Lopez pokes fun at THE Jennifer Lopez in new E! ad

Scots namesakes are stars in their own right
By Brian Mciver
The Daily Record

THEIR passports always get a second look and every taxi booking takes twice as long. Hairdresser Hugh Grant and office worker Jennifer Lopez are cursed by having the same name as two of the most famous people on the planet.

But after years of suffering wisecracks the put-upon Scots are getting their own back by appearing in a series of adverts poking fun at their celebrity alter egos.

The Scottish Hugh Grant, 39, from Eyemouth, near Berwickshire, attempted to launch his own career in acting as a teenager, but is now enjoying backhanded fame thanks to the foppish English star.

But the 28-year-old Scots J-Lo is sick of being asked if her “bum looks big in this” and dislikes the films and music of her namesake.

Both Scots star in a series of international adverts for the E! Entertainment Channel, just launched in cinemas and on British and American TV, re-enacting a stereotypical moment from the celebrity’s life, and are also featured on posters posing next to stills of their other halves.

And both said they are delighted to finally get a small taste of the superstar treatment, after years of seeing their names in lights.

Jennifer, of Glasgow, said: “It was amazing to film the advert. It went in really quickly because it’s just a short spot, but it was great fun getting all the hair and make-up and pretending to be a star for a day.

“It makes a change from just having a famous name.”

It’s astonishing to think their names were both relatively innocuous 10 years ago.

[…]

Jennifer Lopez always had an unusual name for a girl growing up in Glasgow (the exotic surname comes from her Spanish-born father) but it’s in the last five years that it has really started turning heads.

When the New York diva followed her hit film Out Of Sight by launching her pop career, the friendly and bubbly office worker started getting double takes.

She said: “Everyone always says the same thing: ‘Does my bum look big in this?’ “It can be a real pain when you phone the bank or a taxi and always have to explain.

“I’ve also had some people hang up on me because they think I’m making fun of them or giving a made-up name.

“When I go to the doctor or the dentist I’ve asked them to start asking for ‘Miss Lopez’, but even that gets people’s attention and they will always ask me my first name.

“I also get a lot of second looks at my passport – I’m planning to go to New York next year so that should be fun going through customs there. But most people are really nice about it and say they think it’s great and I’m lucky, which is always really nice to hear.

“I do get approached all the time by TV companies wanting me to do quiz shows and other programmes, but I’m a bit shy.

“When they contacted me about the adverts, though, I thought it was such a good idea that I had to give it a try.”

She continued: “The funny thing is I don’t really like her films or think she’s much of an actress. The first time I spotted her name I was really surprised, and when she became a pop star everyone started talking about it.”

In her advert Jennifer is in a yoga class with a pal, wearing tight tracksuit bottoms, and asks a pal if her bum looks big in them.

LOPEZ AND ANTHONY EVACUATED FROM FILM SET

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

Hollywood couple JENNIFER LOPEZ and MARC ANTHONY were forced to flee the New York set of their new movie EL CANTANTE after a fire broke out close to their trailers.

The couple, who have been filming the HECTOR LAVOE biopic together since the beginning of the week (beg05DEC05), were briefly evacuated from the set yesterday (06DEC05) after an electrical fire broke out underground – beneath Lopez’s trailer.

Filming wasn’t affected as it was taking place elsewhere. Later in the day, Lopez returned to her trailer to expect the damage.

Firefighters had managed to contain the fire underground.

Pirelli Calendar leaked on eBay

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

Multiple copies of an exclusive 2006 calendar featuring photographs of scantily clad stars including JENNIFER LOPEZ and KATE MOSS have been leaked for sale on auction website eBay.

Staff at tyre maker Pirelli, the firm behind the VIP calendar, are selling the limited edition item online in order to make some extra cash.

The calendars are collector’s items as only 35,000 are printed, and they are reserved for employees, VIPs and elite clients. None are sold to the public.

But the tyre firm is disappointed in its cash-hungry workers.

A spokesman says, “There’s nothing to stop employees selling their calendars but it’s not something we are totally happy about.

“People are given them as gifts and we hope they would keep them.”

The limited edition souvenir has a staggering reserve price of $1700 (GBP1000).

Jennifer Lopez Buys A German Shepherd

Friday, December 2nd, 2005

Jennifer Lopez has bought a new dog – a huge German Shepherd.

While many celebrities opt for miniature mutts, the Latin diva is said to be smitten with her new four-legged friend.

A source, who spotted the star sharing a car with her pet pooch, told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “Jennifer looked very squashed in the back with hubby Marc Anthony and the huge dog.

“But she didn’t seem to mind. In fact, she looked quite cosy.”

Earlier this year, it was revealed the stunning brunette is set to design an entire new fashion range – for animals.

The Latin beauty – who launched her own fashion range, Sweetface, for women earlier this year – has now turned her hand to a new range of accessories for pampered pets.

A source said at the time: “Jennifer thought it would be fun and unusual to extend the range of accessories to animals.”

Lopez And Kwatinetz : The Battle Of Who Could Care Less

Thursday, December 1st, 2005

TOP Hollywood manager Jeff Kwatinetz needs to keep a better eye on his schedule.
The head of The Firm, the talent management company that lost a bundle of A-list stars this past year, set up two meetings with his client Jennifer Lopez, and failed to show both times without explanation.

The missed appointments happened the week of Sept. 5, the same week Lopez’s movie “An Unfinished Life” premiered.

A source told PAGE SIX: “She was in town for her premiere. Jeff set up a couple of meetings, and as a favor to Jeff she took the meetings. She shows up at the first meeting and waits. He never shows. At some point J-Lo said as a joke, ‘OK, so I guess I will lead the meeting. What are you proposing?’ ”

Kwatinetz rescheduled the meeting for another day and once again failed to show up. He never explained why he missed the appointments, our source said.

Firm spokesman Mark Pollock said he could not say whether or not a meeting was missed because Kwatinetz was traveling. But he said: “There are eight hours of meetings a day and meetings get missed sometimes. The important thing is that there is no problem between Jeff and Jennifer Lopez. This sounds like somebody trying to drive a wedge between them for their own reasons.” […]

Meanwhile, the irked Lopez is still sticking by Kwatinetz, at least for now. “He is technically her manager but only gets commission off of the deals he sets up for her,” the insider said.

“So far, he has done nothing for her, so he has earned no commission from her. It costs her nothing to keep him on and is no skin off of her nose.”
